Hey guys.
Other than ordering direct from slapmaster, who carries the thrust bearing diff kits for a d ring calandra diff?

Just hate when shipping is as much as the purchase.
Dave.

I would recommend using CRC bearings.

Dave,

I will have Brian (Slapmaster) respond to your question. It might take a few hours though.

Dave,
Happy Holidays. Yea, I understand the shipping frustrations. The only distributor I have in Canada is CanwestRC headed up by Korgea. You want the #101 Diff Kit. If you find that he is low to out or any of his LHS are out, then you get purchase directly from me (Slapmaster Tools). I have two shipping methods over the border; 1st class which is about $1 and can take 7-10 days or International Priority for $9 which takes about 3-5. Postal rates have been raised across the board. I wish it wasn't so, but it's a newer tougher world now a days. I have actually been rather busy lately. I have been putting bumpers out like crazy. I have now have bumpers in black, red and (new) blue to fit 90% of the cars on the market with a 2.4" post hole spacing. I also have a BMI DB12R bumper (2.6" spacing) that also fits the FF'07. Thrust kits have been constant mover. No body wants to rebuild a diff every few runs, dare I say the thrust kits are the cure? Low Roll Center Sockets were supposed to be here before xmas, but it looks like I may have to wait till Santa's sleigh pulls away to open that UPS box. The LRCS are going to be great. They add traction to the rear end of the t-bar cars without raking the t-bar. The LRCS have spent a couple of months in testing around the NW with rave reiews. They are a one piece socket and teflon-nickel aluminum ball installed with both red and blue 2-56 screws to color up as needed. You only need to replace the rear socket for instant bolt in traction for running on Jack tracks or outdoor asphalt tracks. The 1/10th scale oval guys have already been inquirying about 'em. All of these items are available from the distributors listed on the back of the website or straight from the shop.

I hope that everyone has a happy holiday and may your lap times be "low"!

Brian

Wow interesting car, HPI front end and is that one of your creations in the rear? I remember someone (I think it was Sassy Chassis) working on a pan car design with the rear pivots above the batteries but don't remember if it ever came out or not.

Default 1989 Cleveland car

Well, if Brian's gonna go down memory lane, I gotta find something.

Here's my 1989 Cleveland car. Chassis I made (and still have), Agitator rear suspension, 12L front. Dialed ESC. Mucho power from Team Smooth.

The other is from 1988 (that's 20 years....). I painted up matching his and hers bodys for me and my wife. Only time she ever tried to race. Parma Euro-panthers (I think), with Osella bodys.
